  • So tired of broken hearts and losing at this game
    Before I start this dance
    I take a chance in telling you
    I want more than just romance
    You are my destiny, I can't let go baby can't you see
    Cupid please take your aim at me

    Cherish the thought
    Of always having you here by my side (oh baby I)
    Cherish the joy
    You keep bringing it into my life (I'm always singing it)
    Cherish your strength
    You got the power to make me feel good (and baby I)
    Perish the thought
    Of ever leaving, I never would

    I was never satisfied with casual encounters
    I can't hide my need for two hearts that bleed with burning love
    That's the way it's got to be
    Romeo and Juliet, they never felt this way I bet
    So don't underestimate my point of view

    Cherish the thought
    Of always having you here by my side (oh baby I)
    Cherish the joy
    You keep bringing it into my life (I'm always singing it)
    Cherish your strength
    You got the power to make me feel good (and baby I)
    Perish the thought
    Of ever leaving, I never would

    Who? You! Can't get away, I won't let you
    Who? You! I could never forget to
    Cherish is the word I use to remind me of your love

    Romeo and Juliet, they never felt this way I bet
    So don't underestimate my point of view

    Who? You! Can't get away I won't let you
    Who? You! I could never forget to
    Cherish is the word I use to remind me of your love

    Cherish the thought
    Of always having you here by my side (oh baby I)
    Cherish the joy
    You keep bringing it into my life (I'm always singing it)
    Cherish your strength
    You got the power to make me feel good (and baby I)
    Perish the thought
    Of ever leaving, I never would

    Cherish
    Give me faith
    Give me joy, my boy
    I will always cherish you
    Give me faith
    Give me joy, my boy
    I will always cherish you

    Cherish your strength (you're givin' it, you're givin' it to me boy)
    Perish the thought (you're givin' it, you're givin' it to me boy)
    (I could never forget to) (keep giving me all your joy)

    Cherish the thought (give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)
    Cherish the joy (give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)
    Cherish your strength (you're givin' it to me boy, keep giving me all your joy)
    Perish the thought (you're givin' it to me boy, keep giving me all your joy) Writer/s: Madonna Louise Ciccone, Patrick Leonard

  • Dusk Blackman from Albany, Georgia (u.s.a.)And I will always cherish Michael Hutchence of INXS.
  • David from Austin , FlMadonna, when Madonna was Madonna!
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdCherish is a beautiful Madonna tune, one of her best. No other artist has been able to make artist/audience come together like that. Madonna's the only artist I can think of who has been able to pull it off. In an age where there's been a demarcation line in Rock-us-versus-them, Madonna has never been part of that scene. She is Loved and adored by millions who love quality Pop/Rock. She is Music. She is Love. She is Our Lady-Madonna.
  • Kayla from Winnipeg, MbThis is my favourite song by Madonna! I have a HUGE crush on someone and I relate to these lyrics so well because that's exactly how I feel about him! Such a sweet song! :)
  • Linda from Oudenaarde, -One of my favorite Madonna songs.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThe perfect pop song. One of my faves from Madge.
